How your costs are increased without GPS tracking in your fleet


If you operate a fleet you will be aware of the need to keep it fully operational and efficient for the lowest possible cost. There are a lot of things that you can do to achieve this, but one decision that many organisations make in this respect can have far more impact, and that is installing GPS tracking across your fleet.

Many articles have been written about the benefits of this, but here we are going to look at the additional costs you will face if you do not implement GPS for your fleet. This can impact you in three main areas – maintenance, employee and fuel costs.

Maintenance costs

Manually tracking the maintenance requirements of your fleet is time-consuming, laborious and is typically not very accurate. This can quickly lead to regular and necessary maintenance being missed which ultimately increases costs and reduces the overall life of the asset.

Employee costs

The second area is employee costs. Without GPS tracking it is virtually impossible to monitor drivers’ behaviour. They could be making unnecessary stops, falsifying hours or driving slowly to avoid extra work. All of which costs your company money.

Fuel costs

The final area is fuel costs. Fuel is a major expense for any fleet and needs to be closely controlled to maximise profitability. Without GPS tracking it is very difficult to monitor and so reduce fuel costs by optimising routes, reducing idling time and minimising speeding.

There is no doubt that without GPS tracking installed in your fleet you are operating at a distinct disadvantage to your competitors who have made that investment. In this article we have looked at just one area – costs – but there are other factors that it impacts as well. In particular, installing GPS tracking will improve your overall productivity and efficiency, ensuring you get the maximum return on your fleet investment.

Very soon after our second meeting with Phantom, it was clear that a deal would be made between County Car & Van Rental and Phantom. It was only left to negotiate to what level. Phantom are now our only vehicle tracker supplier taking precedence over existing vehicle tracker contracts.

Phantom arranged for County to take on a small number of units initially on a trial basis, he has been always readily contactable to assist with any queries and assisted with any development issues that County have requested.

I have nothing but praise to say about the team at Phantom and foresee a very happy partnership moving forward in the future between County Car & Van Rental and Phantom."

County Car & Van Rental

You will no doubt recall our original conversations earlier in the year and the fact that as a result we recently purchased x2 vehicle tracking devices for x2 of our new, replacement vans.

I just wanted to take this opportunity firstly to thank you personally for your initial advice & guidance with regard to purchasing this tracking system, but in particular I wanted to let you know how pleased and impressed we are with the performance and capabilities of the system which I have to say has by far exceeded our expectations.

The system has been most beneficial and is used on a daily basis to monitor and track the performance and progress of our vehicles in a positive way.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Phantom to anyone considering these requirements."
